Ornithogalum Bulbs are simply delightful...

The tall, cone-like  spikes are adorned with an explosion of tiny wee white flowers.

Usually blooming late Spring, early Summer.

Very long lasting as cut flowers (with a vase life of up to 3 weeks!).

Perfect for borders and pots.

It's a hardy, super easy to grow bulb, which will thrive in most gardens

These beauties are happy even in dry sites, as long as they have reasonable amounts of moisture during the Spring flowering season.

  • Find somewhere in the garden that’s free-draining, and gets full sun or part shade.
  • Loosen the soil to a depth of 15cm, and mix in some Bulb Food, or a general purpose fertilizer.
  • Plant just 4-6cm deep, and about the same distance for spacings (pointy side of the bulb facing upwards)
  • Give them a good watering to get the Bulbs kickstarted.
